A wonderful place, with perfection in every detail. The Staff was very friendly and helped us to organize our day. Our room was very elegant and pleasent. Plettenberg Bay is a cute city, and with this hotel, you'll have a great time.

To say this hotel is quirky is an understatement ,what a wonderful experience. The room s are fantastic like a scene from Casablanca. We had a bed that was 3 feet off the floor with stools to climb on to it. The restaurant and wine lists were superb as was breakfast.

Loved this hotel so much that we stayed an extra night. We were in the boadecea suite and it exceeded our expectations. I loved the tub, meanwhile my husband enjoyed the outdoor shower. The room is huge, and the raised bed is dreamy. The service provided by staff, especially Sybil, was exceptional. We miss it already.

We stayed here in September as part of our honeymoon. We were allocated the bath house room and it was adorable. We loved the quirkiness as it was completely different to any of the other hotels that we had chosen. Loved the double baths, no issues with the temperature of the water (it was boiling!) We stayed for three nights...

Wow, what a refreshing change this hotel was! The decor and design of the bedroom was like a French boudoir ( a huge bed 4ft off the floor). Some would say it's to dark, but for us it was very stylish and a bit different? The dinning room and terrace had a beautiful uninterrupted view over the bay- stunning!! Service...

Grand Africa certainly understands the meaning of customer service. I walked in to a historical setting and a very friendly reception desk. I was greeted immediately and shown my room. The room was equipped with accents of Victorian style and elegance with modern amenities tastefully represented throughout the space. The view was breathtaking from the mini balcony situated just above...
